I'm also branching out to write tutorials on other aspects as well - specifically, I want to look into another UI solution (VaQuole UI) and how to create some interesting gameplay features.
    Nice tutorial...

    I too was thinking a lot of switching to HTML5. Can you give your feedback about using VaQuole vs Slate and its advantages etc
    .

    I'm glad you liked it, Rama. I enjoy writing tutorials - it helps solidify my understanding, gives back to the community, and brings in a lot of feedback that help to fix misunderstandings & mistakes I've made in the process. ^-^

    Part 2, covering Styles, is now up! (See first post)

    Very thorough and well written! And I liked the pun!

    And it's very nice how you tied it all into blueprints!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Slate-based Menu Programming Tutorials

    So, I've noticed a lot of confusion about how to use Slate in the community. Recently, I started using it to rewrite a lot of somewhat complex menus (written in somewhat messy Blueprint) we've got in a game I'm working on, and I've decided to help out by writing up a multi-part tutorial series on using Slate to write some pretty cool menus! :3

    Part 1: Introduction!

    Part 2: Styles!

    Part 3: Upgrading to UE 4.3 & Data Binding!
    http://minalien.com/unreal-engine-4-...slatec-part-3/

    Enjoy! ^-^
